ATLANTA (AP) - Officials in Gwinnett County say they’re trying to resolve a dispute over donation drop boxes.

Gwinnett County Commissions Chairman Charlotte Nash tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (https://bit.ly/1rgB9KA) that officials are working on a new ordinance banning all drop-boxes unless they’re placed at recycling companies’ offices.

Business owners had complained the boxes for donated clothing or other items are placed on their property without permission. But two recycling companies sued after the county passed an ordinance preventing for-profit companies from using the boxes.

A judge gave the county until April 29 to approve a new ordinance. Nash says the county plans to ask for an extension so officials can complete their work.
